Introduction
In late 2010 I joined Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg to become the president of Katalyst

I am the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of BUZZmedia (buzznet
) a Hollywood based social web programming company.  I also spend a lot of time working with Jesse Von Doom on CASHmusic open source project.

I also had the pleasure to be a cofounder of Metapa with Scott Yara. Metapa eventually became Greenplum and was sold to EMC. I became a partner in TROON an early digital agency which we sold to Exceed.  Cofounded Digital Threads in SF with Craig Newmark where we cooked up craigslist

In the 90's I was a PERL, PHP, HTML, LINUX/UNIX and Network engineer. If I was able to concentrate like used to I would be hacking full time.

I am also a solipsistic philosopher and occasional warm water long board surfer and pool skater.
